Qaf ق

2. Quran al Azeem(great quran)

Hassan Amiri narrates, “I asked Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) regarding this saying of Allah, “And certainly We have given you seven of the oft repeated verses and the great Quran (15:87).” Imam (as) said, “We are those seven oft repeated verses and Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as) is the great Quran.”

I heard a crier there saying, “I order the entire creation to love Ali (asws). Verily! He is the leader of the muslims, leader of the pious, and the leader of those with shining foreheads on the day of judgement.”

(Amali al Toosi First Edition pg 196)

4. Qamar (moon)

Hasan bin Saeed asked ibne Abbas (ra) regarding this ayah, “I swear by the sun and its brilliance (91:1).” Ibne Abbas (ra) replied, “This is reference of RasoolAllah (saw). “The moon when it follows the sun (91:2) is in reference of Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as). “And the day when it reveals it (91:3) is in reference of Hasan (as) and Hussein (as). “And the night when it draws a veil over it (91:4) is in reference of Bani Ummaya.”

(Tafseer e Furat pg 212)

Ans bin Malik narrates, “One day when RasoolAllah (saw) was performing Fajr prayers, after finishing His prayer He came towards us and said, “O’people! If you lose the sun, associate yourself with the moon. If you lose the moon, associate yourself with the flower blossoms. If you lose the flower blossoms, associate yourself with the leaflets. I am the sun.

Ali (asws) is the moon. Fatima (sa) is the flower blossom. Hasan (as) and Hussain (as) are the leaflets. They will never be separated from the Book of Allah until They reach Me at the spring of Kauthar.”

(Fazail ibne Shazan pg 163)

5. Qatil al Fajrah (Killer of unrighteous)

RasoolAllah (saw) said, “Ali (asws) is the Imam of the righteous and killer of the unrighteous. I am helper of those who are helpers of Ali (asws). One who abandons Him (Ali asws) I will abandon him.”

6. Qaid al Atqiya (Leader of pious)

Abul Hasan Ali (as) bin Musa (as) Reza narrates from His Father who narrates from His Father who narrates from His Forefathers, “One who wishes to ride in the arc of salvation, one who wishes with the strongest chain, one who wishes to remain steadfast to the rope of Allah, then he must love Ali (asws) after Me and become an enemy of His (Ali asws) enemies and love the Imams (as) from His Offspring. Verily, They are My caliphs and successors. They are the proof of Allah upon His creation after Me. They are the masters of My ummah. They are the leaders of the pious in jannah. Their party is My party. My party is the party of Allah. The party of Their enemies is the party of shaitan. Allah’s peace be upon Muhammad (saw) and His Progeny (as).

(Ayun Akhbar al Reza (as) First Edition pg 292)

7. Qasim bil Suiyah (One who treats every person equally)

Maaz bin Jabil narrates RasoolAllah (saw) said, “O’Ali (asws)! People disputed with You regarding the prophet hood. There is no prophecy after Me. There are seven attributes that You possess that the people do not and the people of Qureish will not be asked regarding these attributes. You are the first believer. You fulfilled Your every promise with Allah. You established the order of Allah. You did not discriminate between the peoples and treated every person equally. You did justice between them. You are the best judge. On the day of judgement, You will be the greatest to Allah from amongst all.”

(Manaqib al Khawarzmi pg 61)

8. Qalam (Pen)

9. Qul al Mukhtalif (Different sayings)

The saying of RasoolAllah (saw) regarding the wilayat of Ali (asws) that was revealed upon Him by Allah “He who is averse is made to turn away from it (51:9)” means those who oppose the amr (command/authority) of Allah will be thrown into hell.”

(Al Manaqib Third Edition pg 96)

10. Qarah

In Khutba Noorania, Moula Ali (asws) says, “I am Qarah”

11. Qarin min Hadeed

Abu Hamza Thumali narrates from Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) that Ameerul Momineen (asws) said, “Verily Allah was unique in His oneness. Then He spoke through His kalimah.

He then created Me and My Offspring. Then He spoke and created ruh (spirit) through His kalimah. Then He placed this spirit in the noor. Then He placed this noor in Our physical forms. We are the spirit of Allah and His kalimat (words). We resided under the green shadow. There was no sun, moon, day, night nor any eye to witness them. We were worshipping Him and performing His tasbeeh. We were doing this before the creation of the universe. Then He took the oath of allegiance from all of the prophets of Iman (faith) and nusrat (help). For Us, He said, “And when Allah made a covenant through the prophets:

Certainly what I have given you of Book and Wisdom, then a messenger comes to you verifying that which is with you, you must believe in him and you must aid him (3:81)”.

Allah made it wajib (compulsory) upon every prophet to believe in Muhammad (saw) and help His successor. Soon they will help Him. Verily, Allah took the oath of allegiance for My help along with the oath of allegiance for belief in Muhammad (saw). I fought for Muhammad (saw) and slaughtered His enemies and fulfilled My promise with Allah.

However, Allah’s prophets and messengers did not help Me. Allah will bring back to life all of the prophets from Adam (as) to Muhammad (saw) and all will fight alongside Me. How strange it is that Allah shall bring the dead back to life! They will call from Talbia “I am present, I am present”. They will call towards Allah and cut the throats of His enemies until Allah will fulfill His promise to the momins to make them as His caliphs upon this earth as He had done so before. He will establish that religion for them that He had chosen for them.

Then He will bestow upon them peace after they have known fear. They will worship Him and will not commit shirk. They will worship Him in the state of iman (faith). The momins will not dispute amongst each other. They will not practice taqiya. They will return after the return (rajat). Verily, I am the one who shall return over and over. All of the kingdoms and wonders are for Me. I am the slave of Allah, brother of RasoolAllah (saw), trustee of Allah, trustee of the secrets of Allah. I am the face of Allah, His path, His scale. I am that kalimah (word) of Allah that causes the people to gather and causes the gatherings to disperse. I am the greatest names of Allah. I am His best example. I am His greatest sign (Ayatul Kubra). I am the Lord of heaven and hell. I will place the inhabitants of the heavens and hells in their proper places. I will arrange the marriage of the inhabitants of jannah and punish the inhabitants of hell. I will be standing on Araf. I am Dabitul Arz. I am the distributor of hell. I am the Lord of the treasures of jannah. I am the Lord of Araaf. I am Ameerul Momineen. Master of the pious. The sign of previous nations. The tongue of the speakers. Seal of Successors. Inheritor of Prophets. Caliph of Allah. Siratul Mustaqeem (straight path). Allah’s proof upon the heavens and earth and all that is between them and on them. I am the witness of Allah upon the creation. I was witness to your creation and will be witness on the day of judgment. I am the one who has ilm ul mania, ilm ul wasia, ilm ul baliya, ilm ul kaziya. I am Fazl ul Kitab (blessed speech). I am the one for whom the clouds, the lighting, the darkness, light, wind, mountains, oceans, stars, sun, and moon were made to be obedient to. I am the one who slew the nation of Aad and Thamud and the people of Ras. I am the one who slew Firoan. I am the one who saved Musa (as). I am Qarn al Hadeed. I am the Farooq (honor) of this nation. I am the one who guides. I am the one who has knowledge of all things. O’ people, ask Me before you lose Me. O’ Allah, I make You as witness without You I have nothing. You have blessed Me with all greatness. Thanks be to Allah.”

24. Qudrat Allah

Muhammad bin Sadqa narrates Abu Dharr Ghafiri (ra) asked Salman Farsi (as), “Do you know the marifat of Ameerul Momineen (asws) with nooraniat?” Salman (as) replied, “O’Abu Abdullah, come with me and we will ask Ameerul Momineen (asws). We went, but did not find Him. We waited for a while until He returned. Ameerul Momineen (Asws) said, “What has brought you here?” They replied, “O’Ameerul Momineen (asws), we came here to ask You regarding Your marifat with nooraniat.” Moula (asws) said, “I welcome both of you. Verily you are not from amongst those who lower My status. I swear by My age, “RasoolAllah (saw) has said, “Recognition of Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as) as Noor is in fact the recognition of Allah. Recognition of Allah in terms of His Noor is the pure deen (religion).”

Then Moula (asws) said:

“He who has only outward belief in My Wilayat while inwardly having animosity will obtain no benefit from any of His deeds.”

“O’Salman (as)! Only when one recognizes Me with My Noor only then will he be able to attain iman (faith). Only those who recognize Me with My Noor are the true believers. He is the one whose heart has been tested by Allah with true iman (faith). He is the one in whose heart the true Islam is amplified. Thus he shall become an “Arif” (gnostic) and “Mastabser”

(clairvoyant). The one who does not recognize Me with My Noor falls into ambiguity and becomes of those who are followers of shaitan (la).

O’Salman (as)! O’Jondab (ra)! Verily Recognizing Me as Noor is the recognition of Allah. My Recognition is Allah’s Recognition. Recognition of Allah is Recognition of Me. This is the true religion. Allah did not place upon mankind any order other than to accept Tauheed e Allah (98:5) (Oneness of Allah). Testifying to the prophet hood of RasoolAllah (saw) is the true religion. Whenever Allah orders to “establish prayer” it refers to the belief in My Wilayat. One who pledges his allegiance and submits himself completely unto Me has truly established “salat” (prayer). Yet this matter is difficult, exceedingly difficult! Zakat (poor rate) is the acknowledgment of the greatness of the attributes of Aimmah (as). All of this is the true religion.

As attested to in the Holy Quran, true iman (faith) is the recognition of tauheed (oneness) and the testimony of nabuwat and wilayat. One who acts upon these beliefs achieves deen (religion).

O’Salman (as)! O’Jondab (ra)! One whom after being tested by Allah instantly accepts Our Amr (authority) and does not reject any matter which pertains to Us is a momin and Allah will open his heart to the acceptance of Our Amr (authority/command). He will not display even an element of doubt or suspicion. However he who objects with “why and how”

becomes a kafir (disbeliever). Therefore be submissive to the Amr e Allah. Verily We are the Amr e Allah (Command of Allah).

O’Salman (as)! O’Jondab (ra)! Verily Allah has made Me as His Trustee upon the creation and His Vicegerent upon His earth, in His territories, and over His servants. Allah has blessed Me with such attributes that even those people who have true understanding regarding the merits of such blessings and those who have knowledge regarding all matters will still not be able to truly comprehend the status which Allah has blessed Me with. A true momin is one who recognizes Me in this manner.

O’Salman (as)! Allah said, “Do not seek the help of Allah except through patience and prayer”. Patience is Muhammad (saw) and Prayer is My Wilayat. This is why Allah has declared it to be difficult to understand such attributes. In truth My Wilayat is exceedingly difficult except for those whose souls are submissive. Thus My Wilayat has been made easier by Allah upon those whose souls have submitted.

O’Salman (as)! We are those Secrets of Allah which shall not be hidden. We are His Noor that can never be extinguished. And We are those blessings which can never be matched.

Our first is Muhammad, Our middle is Muhammad, and Our last is Muhammad. One who recognizes Us in this way is a follower of the true religion.

O’Salman (as)! O’Jondab (ra)! Muhammad (saw) and Myself are one Noor. And before all other creations had been created We were already reciting the praises of Allah. We were the cause of the creation of the entire universe. Then Allah divided this Noor into two parts; first was His prophet Mustafa (saw) and His Successor Murtaza (saw). Then Allah said to each half “Be Muhammad (saw)!” “Be Ali (asws)!” This is the reason RasoolAllah (saw) said, “I am from Ali (asws) and Ali (asws) is from Me. None other than Myself and Ali (asws) are able to convey the Divine Message of Allah.” In Quran where Allah says “Ann fosanawa ann faskum (3:61)” is a reference to Our being One Essence in Alam e Arwah and Anwar (worlds of spirits and noor). And where Allah says “If He has died or is slain(3:144)” “died” is a reference to the death of Prophet (saw) and “slain” is in reference to the martyrdom of His Successor. As We are One Essence and One Noor. We are One in purpose and attributes. However We are different in Our bodies and names, but in Alam e Arwah We are One Noor. As RasoolAllah (saw) said, “O’Ali (saw), You are My Soul which is inside of Me. In this world of creation RasoolAllah (saw) said, “You are from Me and I am from You. You are My inheritor and I am Your inheritor. You are the Soul of My body.” Allah says, “Sallu illay wa salamu tasleema”. “Sallu illay” (sending blessings on Him) is reference to Muhammad (saw) and “salamu tasleema” (acknowledge Him) is reference to Me (Ali saw). Allah joined Me with Muhammad (saw) in One Noor and then split that Noor into two beings based upon Their Names and Attributes. Then Allah ordered His creation to send blessings upon Muhammad (saw) and salam upon His successor Ali (saw).

RasoolAllah (saw) said, “One shall not gain any benefit or reward from sending blessings unto Me until he submits to the Wilayat e Ali (saw).”

O’Salman (as)! O’Jondab (ra)! During His time Muhammad (saw) was “natiq” (speaking) and I was “samit” (silent). During every era both “natiq” and “samit” are present.

Remember, Muhammad (saw) is the Master of those who shall gather on the Day of Judgement and I am the Master of Resurrection. Muhammad (saw) is the warner and I am the one who guides. Muhammad (saw) is the Lord of Jannah and I am the Lord of Rajat (Return). Muhammad (saw) is the Lord of Hawz e Kausar (divine spring) and I am Sahib e Lawa (standard bearer of the flag which will be raised on the Day of Judgment).

Muhammad (saw) is the Lord of the Keys to the Gates of Jannah and I am the Lord of Jannah and Jahannum (paradise and hell). Muhammad (saw) is the Lord of Revelation and I am the Lord of Inspiration. Muhammad (saw) is the Lord of Signs and I am the Lord of Miracles.

Muhammad (saw) is the Seal of all Prophets and I am the Seal of all Successors. Muhammad (saw) is the Master who invites the creation towards the religion of Allah and I am the Protector of the Religion. Muhammad (saw) is the most generous prophet and I am Sirat ul Mustaqeem (true path). Muhammad is “raoof o raheem” (most kind and merciful) and I am Aliulazeem (most high most great).

O’Salman (as)! Allah says “He causes the Spirit to descend upon those whom He chooses”

(40:15). This Spirit then descends unto the one entrusted with the Command and the Decree. I (Ali saw) give life to the dead and possess full knowledge of all things in the heavens and upon the earth. I am Kitab ul Mubeen (Undeniable Book).

O’Salman (as)! Muhammad (saw) is the one who establishes the Hujjat (proof) and I am Hujjatullah (proof of Allah) upon the creation. And the Spirit ascended with Him unto the heavens. I am the one who enabled Nuh (as) to sail His Ark. I was present with Yunis (as) in the belly of the whale. I parted the sea for Musa (as) to allow Him a safe passage through it.

I am the one who destroyed the enemies of Allah. I possess all of the knowledge of the prophets and their successors and I am Fazl al Khatab (a blessed speech). The prophet hood of RasoolAllah (saw) was completed through My Wilayat. I cause the rivers and oceans to flow and cause the mountains to rise up from the surface of the earth. I am likened unto the Father of the Earth. I am the wrath of the Day of Judgment. I am that Khizr (as) who taught Musa (as). I taught Dawood (as) and Solomon (as). I am Zul Qarnan. I am the one who removes sufferings by the command of Allah. I am the one who spread the earth. I am the one who shall send wrath on the Day of Judgment. I am the one who shall summon all unto Allah on the Day of Judgment. I am Dabba tul Arz (sign of Allah regarding the coming of the Day of Judgment). RasoolAllah (saw) said, “O’Ali (saw) You are Zul Qarnan and its both ends. You were in existence before the beginning of the creation and will remain until its end.”

O’Salman (as)! If one dies from amongst Us, He is not dead and if someone is slain from amongst Us, He is not slain. One from amongst Us who is in occultation performs His duties as We do. We are not born in this world the way humans are born in this world. You cannot compare Us with mankind. I was the voice of Isa (as) when He spoke from the cradle. I am the helper of Nuh (as) and Ibrahim (as). I am the one who will send the wrath of Allah. I shall also bring about the trembling and shall cause the final quake. I am the Lohay Mahfooz (Protected Tablet) and all of the knowledge within it originates from Me. I can appear in any form by the wish of Allah. Whoever has observed these appearances has seen Me and whoever has seen Me as observed the Signs of Allah. We Masoomeen (as) are the Noor of Allah which can never be rejected or changed.

O’Salman (as)! Every prophet is honored because of Us. You can praise Us with whatever titles or attributes within your imagination however do not ascribe rabuyiat (godship) to Us. People find salvation through Us and reach their destruction due to Us.

O’Salman (as)! He who firmly believes in all that I have explained is that momin whose heart has been tested by Allah with iman (true faith) and he has recognized Our true status.

One who doubts or hesitates is a nasibi (enemy of Allah) even if he claims to believe in Our wilayat he is a liar.

O’Salman (as)! Myself and the Divine Guides from My Family, Imams (as), are the hidden mystery of Allah and Most Beloved by Him. We are all One. Our Amr (authority) is One. Our mystery is One. Thus do not try to find differences amongst Us or you will be killed (go astray). We shall appear in every age by the will of Allah. Afflictions shall be upon the one who denies us. Only those whose hearts, eyes, and ears have been sealed will deny Us.

O’Salman (as)! I am the Father of every believer.

O’Salman (as)! I am the most courageous. I shall be coming soon. I will overwhelm all and make their hearts shudder and make them become deaf. I am the “Supreme Test” which shall be revealed unto all. We are the Signs of Allah, His Proofs, and His Veil. We are the Face of Allah. After My Name was written on the Throne of the Sky, it attained its importance. When it was written on the heavens, they became established. When it was written on the earth, it became stable. When My Name was written on the mountains, they became upraised. When it was written on the wind, it began to blow. When it was written on the lightning, it began to flash. When it was written on the raindrops, they began to provide nourishment. When it was written on the Noor, it became radiant. When it was written on the clouds, the rain began to flow from them. When it was written on the thunder, it became quietened. When it was written on the night, it caused the night to become dark. When it was written on the day, it made it luminous and radiant. “

(Bihar ul Anwar First Edition pg 26)

He is the most knowledgable. Honor Him. He is your leader that will take you towards jannah. Whenever He calls you, answer His call.

5. Kalimatullah al Aliya (Greatest word of Allah)

RasoolAllah (Saw) said, “After Me the enemy of Allah is kafir (disbeliever). One who wages war against Him is a mushrik (polytheist). One who loves Him is a momin (true believer).

One who prefers Him over all things is associated with haq (truth). Ali (asws) is the noor of Allah amongst His kingdom. He is the proof of Allah upon His creation. Ali (asws) is the sword of Allah upon His enemies. Ali (asws) is the inheritor of the knowledge of the prophets. Ali (asws) is the greatest word of Allah. He is the leader of the people with bright shining foreheads. Ali (asws) is the Imam of all muslims. Allah does not accept anyone’s iman (belief) without the wilayat and obedience of Ali (asws).”

7. Kalimatul Tamah (Absolute word from amongst the words)

Verily, Imams (as) hear the voices of Their mothers in the womb. “And the word of your Lord has been perfected in truth and justice” (6:115).

3. Lisanul Sadiq(tongue of the trustworthy)

Moula Ali (asws) said to His Son Imam Hasan (as), “I am the tongue of the trustworthy”.

4. Lisanul Sidq(tongue of truth)

There are many authentic narrations from authentic narrators who wrote they found 300 different names of Ameerul Momineen (asws) in Quran.

Ibn Masood narrates regarding this ayah, “And surely it is in the original of the Book (Umm al Kitab) with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom” (43:4) and this ayah, “And We left behind for them a truthful tongue of Ali” (19:50) and this ayah, “And ordain for me a goodly mention among posterity” (26:84) and this ayah, “Surely upon us resteth the putting together thereof and the reading thereof. Therefore, when we recite it, follow its recitation. And upon Us lies its explanation” (75:17-19) and this ayah, “You are only a warner and there is a guide for every people”(13:7). The warner is RasoolAllah (saw) and the guide is Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as).

And this ayah, “Is he then who has with him clear proof from his Lord, and a witness from Him recites it” (11:17). The proof is RasoolAllah (saw) and the witness is Ali (asws).

And this ayah, “Surely Ours is it to show the way. The first belongs to Us and the last belongs to Us”. (92:12-13) and this ayah, “Surely Allah and His angels bless the Prophet; O you who believe! call for (Divine) blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation” (33:56), and this ayah, “Lest a soul should say: O woe to me! for what I fell short of my duty with the side of Allah, and most surely I was of those who laughed to scorn” (39:56). The side of Allah is Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as) and this ayah, “We have recorded everything in Imam Mubeen” (36:12) Imam Mubeen is Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as), and this ayah, “And You are one of the messengers” (2:252) and “Surely You are on the Siratul Mustaqeem (right path)” (6:39), and this ayah, “Then on that day you shall most certainly be questioned about the blessing” (102:8) the blessing is the love of Ameerul Momineen (asws).

They have mentioned various other names of Ameerul Momineen (asws), but we will not mention them here. However, they are not hidden. They are very well known and there are more than 300 names of Ameerul Momineen (asws) in Quran.
